A GLOBAL NETWORK for accelerating the professionalization of farmer organizations
AMEA is one of the fastest-growing networks in the agricultural sector and includes private and public organizations. AMEA has 26 members dedicated to accelerating the development of professional farmer organizations. Our vision is a future where there are millions of professional farmer organizations that have access to finance and markets, which enables them to deliver significant benefits to their members. This vision is one of inclusive growth and development.
The AMEA network currently reaches millions of smallholder farmers in more than 80 countries. AMEA aims to transform the way in which farmers and their organisations are supported. In most countries this system does not exist. Instead hundreds of projects deliver services in a fragmented, expensive and unsustainable way. The AMEA network works toward a system that accelerates farmer organisation professionalisation and incentivises service quality improvement. This system is what we call the AMEA Framework.
